Opposition motions, Province of Quebec, Softwood lumber industry, Trade agreements,

Accords commerciaux, Province de Québec,

Mr. Speaker, I understand that the softwood lumber issue is very complex and that it involves a number of industry stakeholders across the country.

I commend the minister for her speech and her hard work on this file, and I want to thank her for fighting for our interests.

Forestry is one of the most important industries in the economy of my riding, Laurentides—Labelle, after tourism. It is therefore very important to us that a sustainable, long-term solution be found.

The economy of the Antoine-Labelle RCM was hit hard by the forestry crisis, because that municipality depends on that industry.

Can the minister explain what she is doing to ensure that all industry stakeholders and provincial governments are aware of ongoing initiatives, and that any deal reflects the diversity of interests in the various communities across Canada?

Monsieur le Président, je comprends que l'enjeu entourant le bois d'oeuvre est très compliqué et qu'il concerne plusieurs acteurs de l'industrie partout au pays.

Je félicite la ministre de son discours et de son travail acharné dans ce dossier, et je la remercie de se battre pour nos intérêts.

Dans la circonscription de Laurentides—Labelle, l'industrie est parmi les plus importantes pour l'économie, après le tourisme. C'est donc très important pour nous de trouver une solution soutenable à long terme.

L'économie de la MRC d'Antoine-Labelle a été fortement touchée par la crise forestière, car la MRC est dépendante de cette industrie.

La ministre peut-elle nous expliquer ce qu'elle fait pour assurer que tous les acteurs de l'industrie et les gouvernements provinciaux sont au courant des démarches en cours et pour faire en sorte que toute entente reflète la diversité des intérêts des différentes communautés du Canada?
